15-17 Tavistock Place
After completing a Pharmacy degree at The University of Nottingham I worked as a pharmacist in both the NHS and private sector for 5 years. I later transitioned into public health and health economics, completing a Masters in Public Health at LSHTM and a Graduate Diploma in Economics at Birkbeck, University of London. I first joined the school in 2011 and recently submitted my PhD which looked at the performance of chain pharmacies in India.
My main research interest lies in better understanding and improving private sector healthcare provision in low and middle income countries. My current work focuses on understanding the challenges that recent developments in healthcare markets pose for effective regulation. My PhD research used a mixed methods approach to understand the effect of chain pharmacies on key public health concerns, such as quality of care and prices of medicines, in India. My previous work has looked at the commissioning of healthcare in the UK.
